You Look Disgusting

Beauty blogger Em Ford of My Pale Skin recently posted some pictures of herself without makeup. Like most young people, she has acne. The reaction to the pictures put her through the wringer, and when she put makeup on to show the difference, commenters put her through the wringer again! So she made the video You Look Disgusting to tell the story concisely in images.

I wanted to create a film that showed how social media can set unrealistic expectations on both women and men. One challenge many face today, is that as a society, we're so used to seeing false images of perfection, and comparing ourselves to unrealistic beauty standards that It can be hard to remember the most important thing - You ARE beautiful.

You are beautiful - no matter how flawed you feel, no matter how upset you may about the way you look or how hard you find it to make friends, or be confident. Believe in yourself, and never let anyone tell you're not beautiful - not even yourself.

Is there any wonder that young women have so many body image issues? Sure, you can say that she shouldn’t put pictures of herself on the internet, but there are plenty of young women who don’t, but still relate to what goes on in this video. -via Viral Viral Videos
